of george w. bush, told "people" magazine hillary clinton should run in 2016. she stopped short of saying she'd vote for her, but said clinton is, quote, unbelievably accomplished. at a dark time in politics when it seems the parties can't even agree on what they disagree about, that goes a long way. we need more barbara bushes in the beltway. it was a pleasant surprise to hear from her. she's not the first one in her family to speak positively about the clintons. george w. bush has come out and said she knows what it means to work under pressure. regardless of how you view the clintons or the bushes, both families know what public service is all about or what public service should be all about. you know, ultimately it should be about getting results. it should be about making people's lives better. unfortunately, we've lost sight of that in politics today. if you give someone a compliment or you serve someone on the opposite side of the political aisle, you're seen as weak. you're seen as someone that, you know, is a traitor, essentially. this comes from personal experience. i spent a lo
. >> thank you, jim. in a rare interview this morning, former president george w. bush talked about the enormity of the situation currently going on at the white house. as the president weighs whether to take military action in syria. >> the president's got a tough choice to make. if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. putting our military into harm's way is the toughest decision a president will make. >> here to give us insight into that difficult decision is the former u.s. ambassador to morocco and former middle east adviser mark ginsburg. what i want to talk to you about is the careful line administrations have to tow when dealing with whether or not it's a declaration or war or just military action. we've seen several examples in the recent past including the 1983 invasion of grenada, the bombing of libya in 1986, invasion of panama in '98, et cetera. i think it's important for our viewers to really understand the best way to describe in the clearest sense the difference between using military force and a declaration of war. >>
washington, d.c. governor, thanks for joining us. >> thanks, jonathan. >> so during the george w. bush administration, democrats accused the president of using, playing politics with the terror threats, especially during the 2004 re-election campaign. now president obama's republican critics are accusing him of using the terror warnings as a way to divert attention away from other issues, particularly the nsa leaks. are they right, or is the administration simply responding to threats that actually exist? >> well, i think the obama administration has a fair amount more credibility. the bush problem was this ridiculous orange, red, yell, orange, red, yellow and making a big deal about that every day, which the obama people properly abandoned. look, you have to react to what the intelligence is finding. the intelligence clearly gave a credible warning. if you don't react to that and you're the president of the united states, then the death of americans is on your shoulders. so of course he's going to react. of course he's going to close embassies if he feels they're at risk. the most rid
at a time. [ male announcer ] see how the duck's lessons are going at >>> former president george w. bush grabbing headlines in the news cycle this tuesday. he had a stint inserted during a procedure this morning in dallas to repair a blockage in one of his arteries. the surgery went well, and he's expected to be released from the hospital tomorrow. >>> u.s. officials confirm a drone strike in yemen overnight killed four suspected al qaeda militants. tensions remain high in the region related to that terror threat and the subsequent embassy closures, especially in yemen, considered the highest risk for an attack. it's one of 19 embassies in the raej that remains closed at least through the weekend. >> ft. hood is under tight security today as the trial begins for an army psychiatrist accused of a 2009 mass shooting that left 13 people dead. major nadal hasan is representing him. that means he could cross-examine some of the very victims he's accused of shooting. >>> and the cleveland home where three women were imprisoned and raped for a decade will be torn down this week. electri
on the health of former president george w. bush. he's back home resting one day after doctors surgically inserted a stint to ease a blocked artery. it was discovered during a routine physical. the president's doctors say he is doing great. >>> and it wasn't all terror and big brother with president obama on "the tonight show" last night. jay leno couldn't let him go without asking the president about his once-bitter rival turned confidant hillary clinton. the two had lunch last week at the white house. >> we had a great time. she had that post-administration glow. you know, when folks leave the white house. like two weeks later, they look great. but it was wonderful conversation. you know, by the end of my first term, you know, we had become genuinely close. i could not have more respect for her. she was a great secretary of state. very, very proud of the way she did it. >> did you notice her measuring the drapes or anything like that? >> keep in mind, she's been there before. >> that's true. >> she doesn't have to measure them. >> meanwhile, day two of deliberations in the whitey bulger
with george w. bush, who disagreed with racial profiling. most people have. what we have is a policy that's been sold as something else. today you have a federal court stepping in saying, no, mayor bloomberg, stop discriminating on the basis of race. that's what this program is. >> on the politics of this, the other thing pete pointed out is mayor bloomberg is really behind the times with this law and order, anything to lower crime. there is no proof that stop and frisk does lower crime. that's another matter. going back to holder, pete is absolutely right that the politics of this have shifted. not just rand paul and mike lee, the libertarians. you're also seeing a lot of republican governors across the country. governors like rick perry. ken cuccinelli said if you really believe no one is beyond redemption, then we need to stop throwing away that key. toure, to your point on the changes that have already been made in the crack and coke sentencing disparity, that has already saved us $.5 billion, 16 years in prison, and not to mention the moral failings that previously were there in that
actually with an american journalist calling him a traitor, and then cuts to george w. bush awarding him the presidential medal of freedom. so talk about our transition of a society and how we view him. >> hopefully if the film is doing its job, that's what it's about. once he refuses induction, he doesn't change, so to him being vilified by david suskind to get the medal of freedom from president bush is because we changed. so that's for me is what the film is about, our transformation, and how muhammad ali, being in the cross hairs of the black freedom struggle and the antichef vietnam movement, not because he was a professional activist. he does not insert himself to be an anti-war leader. that role was really thrust upon him, you know, and stuck to his principles, made a moral stand. he assumed he was going to prison. that's a real hard thing for people to remember now. had he was sentenced to five years in prison, that's what he thought was going to happen. and, you know, it takes -- took i believe tremendous, incredible courage, hopefully on an inspiring level to young people now,
, electronic. this particular judge was appointed by george w. -- originally a george w. bush appointee, put on the courts by roberts, who's very friendly to this stuff. we have to take a big step back. you can still have the debate over whether you want really invasive surveillance of all of your electronic communications. what we learned this week, and what i think people have to get their arms around, is that we have the government lying to the very court that's supposed to oversee this, misleading that court over massive surveillance. so we haven't had the honest debate. we're finally getting little dribs and drabs it of it. you have everyone from mcconnell to president obama basically leaving us with an impression for years this was all overseen by the court, overseen as if it was okay. in fact, the court was waving a flag saying, this is wrong, this is unconstitutional, and don't lie to us. >> regarding that, you know, oversight by the court, to me that is the most troubling part. not only are there concerns over the points you raised, but the fact of the matter the court has said they
